2: Kiyad-un Qara Nachin - New Name (KLoI) (NP)

Submitter desires a masculine name.
The following changes are allowed: You may change kiyad-un to Borjigid-un if needed
Language/Culture (I care most about 'Kiyad-un' as this a clan/tribe name I wish to have in my name) most important.

Kiyad-un Qara Nacin is a Mongolian name combining a tribal byname, a descriptive byname, and a given name.

The Kiyad tribe, the epithet Qara (found in primary sources), and the personal name Nachin are found in Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, "Mongolian Naming Practices" (https://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongolian_names_marta.html). The byname construction for tribal and descriptive names and the alternative transliteration Nacin for the personal name follow the procedure in Ursula Georges, "Middle Mongol Grammar for SCA Names" (https://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongolgrammar.html).

Additional Mongolian Name/Grammar Sources:



No Name conflicts found by Moonbeam Pursuivant.

Thus ends the October 2023 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.
